An Unexpected—and Delicious—Meatless Main
Here's a vegetarian dinner from Martha Stewart's Slow Cooker
that anyone will love (especially you, since it's easy to make). It's part soup and part bread pudding, a sort of slow-cooker riff on traditional French onion soup that also includes greens. The slow cooker's low heat transforms half-moon slices of onions into a sweet, caramelized slump, to which you add beef stock, dry sherry and baby kale (or another leafy green). To finish this savory dish, you arrange toasted slices of rustic bread over the onions, broth and kale, sprinkle grated Gruyère cheese over the top and cook until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
